About Chris


Hello my name is Chris and I am a Kensington tennis coach as well as a PTR Certified Tennis Professional with over 25 years of playing experience and over 20 years of teaching experience. I was a former assistant coach at the University of Maryland (UMD), The Aspen Hill Club Pro, USTA (United States Tennis Association) Clinician and I was the director of 350 tennis students over in the Howard County Tennis Association (Junior Program) that sponsors junior tournaments such as the Columbia Maryland Open Tennis Tournament which is the largest sanctioned USTA event for junior players under the age of 18.

I am offering private tennis lessons, semi-private tennis lessons, group tennis lessons for all ages (kids, teens, adults, seniors) and most skill levels (beginner level only). So whether it’s working on your forehand, backhand, volley or serve-I would be glad to help!

I am available to teach at various outdoor locations in the Bethesda, Potomac, Rockville, Silver Spring and upper NW DC areas but I will also travel up to 15 miles to a tennis court of convenience near you!

Please contact me through my coach page and then I will contact you back within 24 hours to introduce myself, answer any questions and if you are interested, we’ll set-up your first tennis lesson at a time and place that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to the opportunity to be your Kensington tennis coach. We’ll see you on the tennis court!

"Coach Chris has taught our children tennis for about 4 years now. He is a phenomenal coach who exemplifies professionalism, skill and has a great rapport with children. His instruction is helpful, intuitive and always entertaining. I have seen him approach children of varying skill level and varying attention span skillfully and successfully and he is able to engage and instruct them no matter their degree of interest or capability. Coach Chris creates a rewarding learning environment and truly cares about his students. I am happy to say I have seen my children grow exponentially as tennis players and feel we have our coach and friend Coach Chris to thank for it!"
